Ten minutes later Miss Abigail Jane,
with her grandmother's china silk

But Abigail Jane snook her bead and
fluttered away to her own cottage. No
one should share this sacred moment
with ber. Nervously she tore off the
wrappings and with a cry of Joy held
a photograph of SI at arm's length.
Then but never mind; women have
done such things ever since the day of
the first daguerreotype.
Once she turned it over and was pas
tied by the printing on the back:
